Documentary, Canada, 2013, 50 min

Surviving:) The Teenage Brain will forever change your perception of what teenagers are all about. Who are they and why do they do what they do? Who knew they had anything in common with some of the world’s greatest thinkers. What do Mozart, Mark Zuckerberg, The Beatles and Einstein all have in common? Believe it or not their greatest ideas were formed during their teen years. British evolutionary biologist and author, David Bainbridge, leading American neurologist, Jay Giedd, and biological anthropologist, Helen E. Fisher, provide new research that explains both the peculiarities and the immense power of the teen brain and turns everything we’ve come to believe about adolescence on its head! Using hilarious, Jackass-inspired stunts, comic book style graphics and some of the best minds in the field, we look at the science deep within the teen brain and celebrates evolution’s masterpiece – the years that bring us judgment, adaptation and innovation.
